don't have a problem if you have a gun, but the federal laws say you can't have a gun if you're a criminal, a substance abuse person, psychiatric problems or a minor. and then congress doesn't vote money to fund enforcement, and it's too easy to avoid all the background checks. the laws don't apply to gun shows and to internet sales, which is 40% of the guns. and the guns are getting into the hands of the wrong people. if you are responsible and you're an adult and you don't have a criminal record, nothing wrong with you having a gun. for protection for yourself or hunting or whatever. target practice, whatever you want to do. but there's certainly a whole bunch of people who should not get guns. we could stop it. we just don't seem to have the courage to do it. >> jimmy: what can we do? should we write -- [ applause ] >> you can -- around this country, call your congressman and your senator. you can get their numbers in the phone book or in new york from 311. and you say -- >> jimmy: the phone book.

he's going to ask for more aggressive prosecution of existing laws. let me separate this out a little bit. the first three items are things he's going to ask congress to do. there are actually already bills that have been introduced in the united states senate that deal with those three items. the fourth item has to do with people who essentially lie on background checks, they fail background checks. there were over 71,000 people in 2009 who failed on a background check in an attempt to purchase a gun, but only 44 of those folks were prosecuted. so the president is essentially going to order his justice department to say you know what, don't let these people fall through the cracks, prosecute the laws on the books. and interestingly enough, brian, this is something the nra, this last proposal, is something the nra says it supports. we'll see. this is going to be a tough road to hoe in congress, we know that, but one of the things about this, brian, one gun control activist said to us this is the most sweeping gun proposals since 1968, following the assassinations of r.f.k. and
